ioNature is an interactive installation consisting of 1500 sets of real grass and dried grass. When people walk nearby, the grass will respond to people by swinging back and forth, form wave patterns, just like when wind blows in the nature field. It's an exploration of the question - what will be like in the future when everything is connected?

Special thanks to Autodesk Pier 9 Residency Program that made this project possible.
